It sets out some general principles that should be included in the Delivery Plan, identifies three levers that are likely to have the biggest impact on child poverty and recommends some other elements that should be included in order to improve quality of life for children living in poverty.

Updated 22 May 2018

The Poverty and Inequality Commission’s Child Poverty Delivery Plan advice draws on analysis carried out by IPPR Scotland, looking at the costs and impacts of using social security interventions to reduce child poverty in Scotland. In its original analysis IPPR Scotland recalculated the poverty line for each intervention based on the intervention being introduced UK-wide. IPPR has subsequently undertaken further analysis which recalculates the poverty line if the intervention was only introduced in Scotland. This has an impact on the cost and effects of some of the policy interventions. The updated analysis from IPPR Scotland can be found here https://www.ippr.org/research/publications/child-poverty-in-scotland .
